16th Annual Rochester Dachshund Parade

Saturday, May 13 at 10 AM - 12 PM
Washington Square Park, 181 S. Clinton Ave., Rochester, NY, 14607

This year our parade turns Sweet Sixteen! Whether your dachshund is 16 weeks or 16 years, come and party with us. There will be plenty of time for picture taking in the park and a fashion show on the stage, culminating with all the pups on parade just before noon. You’re sure to see doxies that are pretty in pink or bold in blue, plus hundreds more in all sizes, colors and coats.

Memory Book

Each year at the parade we welcome new entries to our Memory Book. You may create them in advance or construct them on site.
Here are some examples from prior years.
